I hope you’re doing well this week as stay-at-home orders are slowly changing state-by-state. As always, we’re thinking of you, and when endo patients will be able to see their doctors and reschedule surgeries. In the meantime, we hope to provide you with more support and continued programming in the weeks to come, as well as continue our initiative to expand endometriosis education.
As you may know, education is one of the major pillars of the foundation. A critical reason that it takes women with endometriosis an estimated 7-10 years to be diagnosed is due to the fact that so many people still have not heard of endometriosis. Young girls don’t always feel comfortable talking about their period pain, because their family members may never have discussed menstrual health. That’s why it’s our mission to transform endometriosis into a household name, and that education begins with young people.
Due to the pandemic, schools are closed, and our in-person ENPOWR presentations have unfortunately been put on hold. We aim to navigate around this roadblock by continuing to educate people of all ages and all genders about the signs, symptoms, and treatments for endometriosis. But we need your help.
Thank you to all of our donors who have helped to ensure that so many students across the world are educated about endometriosis. To ensure that our EduKit continues reaching students across the globe, both virtually and in the school years to come, consider making a donation today. Every donation, no matter how small, makes a difference in the lives of endo patients.
Have a happy, and safe, Memorial Day!
Executive Director, EndoFound
